LONDON, 13th December, 2012 – NTT Communications in Europe, a member of the NTT Group - the number one Fortune Global 500 telecommunications company - announced today it has invested in extending its network further in Central Europe with a new Point of Presence (PoP) on its Tier-1 Global IP Network, in the Interxion data center, Vienna.
Clive Hamilton, Head of Global IP Network at NTT Europe said, “This additional PoP in Central and Eastern Europe supports our recent recognition at the Capacity Awards 2012, for winning the Judges Award for our investment and contribution to the CEE region in the last year, and how we’ve brought the Groups reputation for quality and innovation to the region.” Hamilton continues, “Choosing the right hubs is key for us in getting closer to our customers and to providing the market with a greater choice of high quality IP providers.”
Vienna is a busy regional hub for Central and Eastern Europe, one of the most developed Internet markets outside of the three traditional core locations; Amsterdam, Frankfurt and London. Connectivity into and out of Vienna gives NTT Com’s customers a much wider choice, increases the competitive landscape and extends its Global IP Network footprint to reach customers it previously couldn’t.
Interxion is a leading provider of cloud and carrier-neutral colocation data centers in Europe, supporting over 1,200 customers through 32 data centers across 11 countries. Their state-of-the-art data centers provide space, power and cooling with reliability and performance that goes beyond industry standards.
Commenting on the decision to choose Interxion, Christian Studeny, Managing Director, Interxion Austria said, "NTT's network expansion into Interxion's data center in Vienna builds on their presence at seven of our other data center facilities across Western Europe. NTT are now well placed to benefit from the facility's close proximity to Eastern Europe, as well as from the presence of over 150 customers already in the facility, many keen to take advantage of their global network for connectivity to all regions of the world.”
